When OntarioExtend’s Terry Greene first announced the 9x9x25 Challenge, I was excited. 9 post in 9 weeks of at least 25 lines sounding like something I could do. Then I read about having a team. My first thought was a team of fellow faculty….. and then I thought, what about student voices?
We have some of the brightest and best students working for us in St. Clair College’s Tutoring Services. These are students who have a passion for their program and a genuine desire to help their fellow students. One of the amazing parts of Tutoring Services, for me, is the community that develops every year. You put a bunch of smart tutors in a room from different backgrounds and programs and compelling discussions are bound to follow. I want to hear what they have to say about teaching and learning and maybe even tutoring.
I put out the call and tutors responded. These are their voices.
I can’t wait!
